No, the M1 width is 0.10 microns. The numbers in the LEF are always in microns, but the tech LEF also happens to be where you specify what the DB Units are for the design. The numbers in the DEF file are in DB Units. The statement DATABASE MICRONS 2000 means that for any numbers in the DEF file, to convert to microns, you divide by 2000. (A long time ago, the tool GUIs would display things in DB Units also, but I believe everything is displayed in microns now.)
Sometimes the LEF will have DATABASE MICRONS 1000, or some other number. It depends on the technology and what the manufacturing grid is.
In reply to Kari:
Do you know how to set the LEF UNITS DATABASE MICRONS? The digital vendor is asking for 2000, but the default in the technology file is creating MICRON UNITS as 100. I am exporting a flat abstract viewcell with only ports and metal blocking layers using the File, Export, LEF.
In reply to mdconcepts:
You can just edit the LEF manually to change the DATABASE MICRONS line to whatever you want.
If you want this to happen automatically when you export LEF, then I *think* it's a setting in the DFII tech file, but it's been a long time since I played in that arena. ;-)
Thanks for the reply. I was guessing as much as I noticed that the coordinates seem to be correct and since you will be importing in, the units will adjust accordingly to whatever is in the LEF file. I searched around in the techfile, but didn't see the specific unit under the CONTROLS portion or the P&R portion.
